New Pool Completes Orange County Landscape Design

Sometimes it makes sense to divide a swimming pool and landscaping project into phases (done by the same pool and landscaping contractor, of course) so that you can get the best results and meet a particular budget. At Dreamscapes by MGR, we understand the need to plan your landscape design around your budget and timeline. We love working with our clients and are thrilled to have the opportunity to receive call backs from satisfied customers ready to complete phase two or even three of an Orange County Landscape Design project that we started.

The Aliso Viejo landscaping project featured above is currently in-progress. About a year and a half ago we completed the landscape design on the front of this Aliso Viejo home. Excited about how their home entrance had turned out, Dreamscapes by MGR was asked to return and install a new swimming pool, spa, landscaping, outdoor loggia and outdoor bathroom. It’s an amazing project and as you can see by the pictures already, shaping into a beautiful (and much more usable) outdoor living space.

Great landscape design is a progressive, step-by-step process, as you’ve no doubt read about on our landscape design page, and we take great care with each segment. In the pictures above you will notice cement has been poured to prepare the base for the outdoor BBQ counter. A granite slab will finish off the counter area and the outdoor kitchen will have plenty of of counter seating all around the bi-level granite counter. To make this area even more inviting a built-in seat bench (seen in the distance) is being constructed and will even include a custom fire pit. The picture at top shows the new swimming pool and spa where Dreamscapes By MGR is currently installing stacked stone along the back wall of the pool and around the spa.

Now is really the perfect time to plan and/or start your landscape design! Have you been thinking about making changes to bring the party to your Orange County backyard this summer? If so, give us a call at 800.446.1281 to get your questions answered with no obligation. We’d love to be a part of your backyard remodel and Orange County landscape design.  We also serve Los Angeles, San Diego & Riverside Counties!

Why Hire an Orange County Landscape Design Firm?

Do the outdoor areas surrounding your home have you feeling overwhelmed? Not knowing the ins and outs of horticulture and design, you likely do not know where or how to start with your Orange County landscape design. Dreamscapes by MGR can help you to sort out your questions, thoughts, and desires for your outdoor space.

Let our decades of experience working with clients in similar situations benefit your Orange County landscape design.

Hiring a professional, licensed, experienced landscaping design contractor can lead to huge benefits in terms of cost, time, and the final look of your landscaping. Combining considerations such as the existing home architecture and client desires with real world space issues and time frames, hours of sun, type of soil and yard slope can really save on your project. Recognizing family dynamics and budget needs is critical, too, and something that we, as premier Orange County landscape designers, understand.

Thinking About Solar for Your Orange County Swimming Pool

Have you been toying with the idea of installing a solar pool heating system to your Orange County swimming pool? It’s not just about solar panels, anymore. Technology has created great advances in solar power, and you may be surprised by how easily alternative energy sources can be added to your Orange County swimming pool.

Depending on your situation, installing a solar swimming pool system may greatly reduce the cost of heating your pool. Upgrades come in a variety of solutions, from installing a series of solar collectors to putting in an energy efficient heater or possibly a swimming pool cover, but the end result is a lower swimming pool heating bill and an extended swimming season, which is something ALL Orange County pool owners can appreciate.

Depending on your area and the amount of sunlight hours your Orange County swimming pool receives, you could probably save enough for a complete pool remodel (not really, that was just to make sure you were paying attention). However, you would see a marked savings immediately since the heat is free once your system is installed and pay for the system within 3-4 years, based on a six month cycle of use.

Dreamscapes by M.G.R. offers a variety of systems to control your solar pool temperature to the degree you desire. As a licensed swimming pool contractor, we can outline options to help you as you strive to save money and the environment. If you are an existing Dreamscapes customer, we can help you upgrade your systems to solar, as well. Give us a call at 800.446.1281 to see how you can be more energy efficient while still maintaining beauty in your Orange County landscaping!
